Last week we announced the launch of our scholarship program for those seeking financial aid to attend PyBay 2016 from August 19-21 in San Francisco. Today, we are thrilled to share that another awesome company, Twist Bioscience, a biotech start-up, has come onboard to send two scholarship award recipients to PyBay!
